My future build is going to have a GIGABYTE R9 280X and an FX 6300 OC'd to as high as I can go with my Hyper 212 Evo. Will this PSU : http://www.ebuyer.com/255454-cit-750w-power-supply-gold... Go well with it, or am i being a tight bas*ard for even considering it.
Thanks in advance :)

never heard of that brand i would say it is a cheap brand and not worth the risk go with something more high quality like seasonic, xfx or corsair

Don't trust new brands that much, they can be either very good or very bad.
280x is a hugry GPU and the AMD a very hungry CPU.

*As my mate mentioned, Seasonic or xfx* is the best you should go with, great reputation and they just won't die!

A 750W PSU that only comes with one (6+2)-pin PCI-E connector and has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 44 Amps? That's a joke.

Any reputable brand 750W PSU will come with at least four (6+2)-pin PCI-E connectors and have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 62 Amps or greater.

For a system using a single Radeon R9 280X graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 750 Watt or greater system power supply. The power supply should also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 42 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.
